Wear It

I Am You

After the German invasion and occupation of Holland in  May of 1940, people suddenly started wearing orange ribbons or clothing items -- the color of the House Of Orange, the royal family of the Netherlands, which had escaped to England. It was a visible show of patriotism in the face of what would become the longest occupation by the nazis of any country in Western Europe.

In America in 2016, there will be more practical or direct activities in the days ahead. But -- the crowds of people who have come out in the aftermath of the election have appeared to be uniformly The Youth; and it's important to see that same desire to act is shared across many different demographics. That so many feel, Not My President; it's important to visibly represent an identity and solidarity.

Pin It.


  1. Is this already a thing - the safety pin - or are you starting a thing? Either way, I'm in.

  2. (My Gottverdammt free blogging engine will *not* let me 'reply'. JebusHFuckernalia; what is the Google problem?)

    This is already a thing. It's a good thing. Let us do the thing that is good.
